PROVO — April's downtown Gallery Stroll includes the second annual Art Chase, organizers say.

"With record turnouts last month, April looks to be a great month for the Gallery Stroll," coordinator Ryan Neely said.

Patrons may pick up a an Art Chase card at any venue, and then get a stamp for them at each gallery or other art venue they visit for a total of nine stamps. They are then eligible for prizes, including dinners at Guru's and Ottavio's and a night's stay at the Hines Mansion, Neely said. The mile-long stroll runs from 6-9 p.m. on Friday.

In addition to art, patrons may also expect live entertainment, including street performers, musicians, caracature artists and marshmallow roasting in several fire pits set up along the route.

Painter Michael Kelly is opening his show in Neely's Mode Boutique clothing store on University Avenue. That show runs until April 30.

The Terra Nova Gallery, 41 W. 300 North, opens its "His and Hers" exhibition, a collection of art from husband and wife artists. Among them are Andres and Jenny Bravo, Sharron and Paul Evans, Ben and Kerri Hammond and Clay and Rebecca Wagstaff.
